Know What to Do in Case of Fire

  • Call 911
  • Immediately evacuate the building. Do not attempt to save personal possessions at the risk of personal injury, but if it is safe to do so, take emergency personal items such as keys, wallets and identification
  • When you are the last to leave a room, close the door
  • Avoid using the elevator
  • Before opening a door, place your hand against it. If the door feels hot or smoke is visible, don’t open it. If the door is cool, brace yourself against it and open it slowly
  • Stay low to avoid the heaviest smoke
